Hi, Read through the troubleshooting solution from Ricky..., and others about using the blower dryer. Take the blow dryer and blow hot in the fan for about 2-3 minutes while keeping the battery out, then hold power for 30 secs and then try to power up. I was going crazy because I had no backup drive on it and all of my MBA and personal work was on there, tried it and WOW she booted right up and as I am typing I am waiting for my backup to install and finish. I went out yesterday and purchase a 2TB Free Agent and once this backup is complete I am moving on to a new comp, not for sure if I will go with HP because I did have this for 5 years and first time having a problem but surely not the same model...I may go with a dell. All computers can have a problem at some time but I do feel HP should have fixed this for free since it was a defect that they are aware of and for that reason I may purchase another brand. I am happy to get all my data off and I am singing for joy!!!!

Hp pavillion dv9000 lcd screen changes colour when moved

The inverter is to change the volts from the laptop to the Backlight. This wont have anything to do with it.
Im more than certian it will be the LCD cable. Proberly loose or torn at where the lid closes.
Hope this helps.

My hp dv9000 wont start,even with the battery or with the charger IS PLUG it doesnt still start up.THE LIGHTS WILL JUST BLINK FOR JUST 2 SE4CONDS AND IT TURNS OFF AGAIN.

Unfortunately it sounds like your motherboard is toast. The DV9000 and the DV6000 use prmarilly the same motherboard and these have been fraught with problems that HP has been unwilling to fix. The good news is these are relatively easy to replace with a good guide, basic tools and patience. Below is a link to the service guide that will help with the disassembly....

I believe the bios on my hp pavilion dv9000 is having problems. the problem i have is that the time and date are always wrong. is there any way i can fix this myself?

Hi Rmellon,

I understand that your PC time and dates keeps changing. I suspect the issue is due to the CMOS battery. I suggest you to change the battery. It will not cost you much. I have included the link which clearly shows a video on how to change the real-time clock battery. Please getin touch with me if you need clarification. It is specific to your dv9000 model.

I am pretty sure it is due to the CMOS. Let me know whether it fixes your issue. If you don't wish to do the above you could also try the following

Let me knwo the response you get.

Thanks & Regards
